More often than you’d believe we listen to that amazing song Wear Sunscreen by Baz Luhrmann. But no matter how much we repeat the words, “Do not read beauty magazines they will only make you feel ugly,” we just can’t help flicking through the pages of yet another beauty bible or scrolling endlessly through the pages of yet another beauty blog. The reason we can’t control our urge is simple: we are absolutely desperate to find out what secrets these goddesses posing as mere-models are using to look as flawless as they do. As it turns out, the internet has…

I discovered PCA SKIN last year after my first facial from my favorite spa! I have acne prone skin and I couldn’t believe the results I had after just the first facial, they use it on their back bar!

Not only do they offer a kit of my products but they…

That’s when I discovered Kids Gold. Beginning in 1979, the creators of Kids Gold -14k for Kids have been merchandising 14k gold children’s jewelry programs for major retailers throughout the country. Not only were they affordable but they are made of…
